#1,846 Fixer Upper Premiere.

For weeks we’ve been seeing the promos leading up to tonight’s premiere of Fixer Upper, so we made an event of it at mama’s house with ranch stew and a roaring fire on the side. Did y’all watch it?

I think the reason it’s become universally loved and wildly popular has much to do with Chip and Joanna and how genuine they seem to be, and how they care for each other and their family so much. And I think people are finally sick of watching trashy reality television once and for all and it feels good to spend time with these people who are doing great things in their communities instead of for pure entertainment value. At least, that’s what I’m loving about Fixer Upper. Y’all might just have a crush on Chip or something. I, personally, have a crush on Joanna’s hair.

Also, I made a new instagram friend today, Mrs. Brunk, a southern soul sister with some beautiful little children, who sent me a very touching message tonight. People like her make me feel like silly photographs are more than that. They’re snapshots that connect people whose hearts and minds love the same things. That’s kind of amazing. I should write Instagram a ‘thank you’ note sometime.

  1. I love Fixer Upper- Chip and Joanna are fun to watch; love how they have fun with each other….and love to see Chip do something crazy with some heavy equipment.

    But unfortunately, like Downton Abbey, I missed it because of my reading obsession with Outlander.


  2. You're completely correct about Chip and Jo. They are such a refreshing pleasure to watch. The way they interact is so cute, and their kids are adorable. I like how we get to see a glimpse of their life in addition to the work they are doing for others. They seem genuine. Something you don't see often. I imagine you and Ben will be the same when we see you two up there. Can't wait!!

  3. LOVE LOVE Fixer Upper. Can they please come to our house and do their thing. Joanna is superwoman. I mean…..four freakin kids and she always looks fresh out of a GAP ad. Come on!

  4. I agree, Fixer-Upper is such a fun, stress-free hour of television. Chip and Joanna are so darn cute, as are their kids and their ranch. I just love listening to her talk in her Southern drawl! I can't wait to finally hear you and Ben and see if you sound like I expect! Nancy
